2016 Legislative Report Card
ACEC California monitors and tracks all state legislation, and at the end of each legislative session a report card is developed and made public. Such a report allows our members to clearly see where their elected officials stand on issues important to the engineering and land surveying industry and helps us hold our state representatives accountable.
To calculate the percentages shown on the report card, the final Floor votes of 9 bills voted on in the Assembly and 9 bills voted on in the Senate were used. It is important to remember that while this report card is a collection of ACEC California's highest priority bills, it is only a snapshot of the thousands of votes that take place over the course of the year. One unfavorable vote drops one's "grade" significantly. Furthermore, it takes great courage to stand up and vote counter to one's party leadership. In many cases, the member who does that is more valuable to our legislative advocacy efforts than the member with a higher percentage rating.
